Dr Emerick is a very compassionate person and I would recommend him to anyone

June 21, 2018

first visit. referral from my oncologist. I was very impressed with the professional approach of Dr. Emrick

June 19, 2018

I was never told when my medicine was going to be cut off or when the dose was reduced. I always found out from the drug store.Ii was embarrassed many times when I was informed in front of people in this way It made me feel dirty because it made me look like I was seeking drugs. Phone calls to this office concerning my medication changes were very seldom answered.

Dr. Emerick is an excellent doctor. He always makes me feel like he has time for me and that I am important to him. He cares and is empathetic. He listens to everything I say and provides a pleasant atmosphere. Pain is a terrible thing to deal with, but I always know he is doing everything he can to improve my situation.
